Well, I told you all about the other night when Blake was awake at 4 and didn't want to go back to sleep...
Since then he has been waking up about 5am... searching for his pacifier (I guess??) Yesterday I got up and sat with him (he was a bit cold that morning) and then by 5:30 he was WIDE awake and ready to start the day. Ok well he goes to bed at 7:15 so getting up that early is one thing, but I don't go to bed until 9:30 and then being pregnant I don't sleep well to begin with, and the dog wakes me up at least once (not sure why... but anyway) so getting up at 5am maybe fine for him, but not me! (wow that was a longgggg statement... not sure it was really a sentence)
So this morning when he woke up I laid there and thought to myself.... hmmm I could go see what the issue is and hope he falls back to sleep, I could lay here and listen to him fuss and both Richard and I can be awake, or I can go out on the couch and listen to him from there. Well I decided to give it a bit (why should I be the only one who suffers?) but then his fussing turned more towards a cry to I went to check on him. I changed his diaper, gave him the other pacifier sat with him for maybe 3 min and then put him back to bed.
I went back to my room totally thinking ok I'm going to be back over there in 5 min... but nope he fell back to sleep and slept until after 8am... hey if 15 min of my time at 5am gets me an extra hour sleep in the morning (yes I could have slept later but I chose to get up and spend time with Richard before he left for work) then I'm all for it.
The challenge is his whole day is totally thrown off now. Most days (hahaha... yeah well wishful days anyway) he wakes up around 6:30 and is ready for his morning nap around 8:30/9:00. And will sleep until 11 typically.... Well today he didn't want to take his morning nap until 10am... we will see how late he sleeps. Then what do I do about his need to have a short afternoon nap still... oh well at least it happened on a day that Richard already knew he'd be coming home a bit later than normal.
Soooo we will see what today brings!
